The City of San Jose has filed suit against MLB concerning the Giants/A's territorial dispute. And Bud Selig somehow managed to avoid "being served" for three solid days. http://blog.sfgate.com/ostler/2013/06/23/selig-tagged-out-in-rundown/ I've been following this for a few years now, and the situation has now reached a point of absurdity. If I owned the A's, I'd resolve this whole thing in three steps: 1. Buy the Brooklyn Cyclones and its stadium. 2. Hold a press conference, at which I'd remind everyone that the MLB Constitution expired on December 31, 2012, and that the territorial rights and limitations applicable under its provisions no longer apply, to the A's or any other team. 3. At the same press conference, announce that starting in 2014 the A's would be calling Brooklyn home. Or, if somehow MLB managed to get a court to block that move, that the team would relocate - to Tokyo... and area where no MLB or minor league team has, or has ever had, territorial rights. Think that'd pave the way for the A's to San Jose?
